United suffered because of De Gea saga, says LVG

Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal said that the Spaniard’s transfer dilemma has thrown Old Trafford crew into tense situation

The former Dutch manager is irritated by Real Madrid’s  reluctance to pay up for their superstar goalkeeper, whom he believes has been too hindered by the summer rumors to play. As a result, he has dropped his number 1 goalkeeper for today’s game against Spurs. The Argentine goalkeeper, Sergio Romero, replaced De Gea between the sticks at Old Trafford today.

“Manchester United always have to pay,” he told the media.

“We have to pay for all the players a certain amount, and what have Real Madrid offered?

“We are asking money and they have to pay the money. In the last few years Manchester United has paid a lot of money and we never received a lot of money for our players.

“I am the victim, the fellow players are the victims, the club is the victim and that is why the transfer period has to change,” the former Barcelona coach continued.

“He is the best goalkeeper we have had the last three years and in two years he was nominated by the fans as the best player at the club. Do you think the trainer-coach wants him to leave? I don’t think so.”
